Ep. 16: “Making the Journey” – Ep. 1 – A One-on-One Conversation with Joe Hoffer About the Disability-Inclusive Hiring Experience at Cohen Highley, LLP

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. So we thought, what better time to launch a new, occasional series we’re calling, Making the Journey 

It’s a fitting title for this series. Because when a business leader or owner makes the conscious decision to become intentional about disability inclusion in their organization, it really is a long-term journey. 

In Making the Journey, we talk one-on-one with business leaders about the twists, turns, challenges, awkward conversations, successes and lessons learned along the way in their disability-inclusive hiring journey.  

For the first instalment of Making the Journey, we talk with Joe Hoffer. He’s a partner at Cohen Highley LLP in London, ON. And he’s an ODEN Business Champion.  

Cohen Highley forged a disability inclusion path for other businesses in Southwestern Ontario to follow…and they are. This is an insight-packed, engaging conversation.
